Lee Greenwood headlined this year’s event with his hit song, “Proud to be an American” to a standing ovation. You could feel the excitement in the room because no company there knew what they won until it was announced that night. Advance Tank is proud to have won gold in the Hard Crafts, Medium size category and appreciate all our employees that got us to this award.  But we must point out Brad DeVore (Gulf Coast Regional Manager), Michael Balluch (Marathon Petroleum Construction Manager) and Jeff Caudill (Corporate Safety Manager) for all their work pushing forward the Advance Tank Safety culture.  In turn, they accepted the award on behalf of Advance Tank .  Thank you to Marathon – Galveston Bay Refinery for nominating Advance Tank for this award and to John Bollum (Enterprise Products HSE Manager), Willy Wells, (Houston Business Rountable Director), and Russell Klinegardner (President and COO of Houston Area Safety Council) for presenting the award to Advance Tank.

This award is based how Advance Tank applies its safety culture and safety program.
